Process

For each program, we will be using past UFE cases, modified to reflect the new structure of the CFE, and practice cases from CPA Canada. Cases selected are subject to change depending on any firm marking announced at a later date. We will work with you to make sure that there is no doubling up on marking done elsewhere.

Candidates are expected to have a firm grasp of technical concepts prior to starting the CFE Success program, obtained via the CPA core and elective courses as well as Capstone 1 offered by the new CPA Program. If you feel that you need some additional support on the technical areas, please let us know and we will consider offering an additional technical workshop if there is sufficient interest.

Multis (70-90 min short cases) - Day 3 cases

  • Multis are debriefed in the afternoon / evening the day they are written. You will need to get your paper in by 10:30am your local time that morning. It is possible to write the night before if you prefer.
  • We assess your paper for each assessment opportunity, using a detailed marking grid with comments. In addition, we provide comments within your paper to indicate areas of strength and areas of weakness. Email us at info@cfesuccess.com if you would like a sample.
  • We return your marking grid and marked up paper to you at least one hour prior to your debrief session, so that you may review your results and comments prior to our skype debrief.
  • We debrief one-on-one over Skype for 20 minutes per multi. This is your time! We can walk you through your response or answer any questions you may have.

Comps (5 hour long cases) - Day 2 Assurance Role Cases

  • Comps are debriefed on Tuesdays. You will need to get your paper in by 2:30pm your local time on Monday. It is possible to write the day or weekend before if you prefer.

Debrief Scheduling

We will consult with you in late July 2017 to set up your debrief time. If you are working full-time during your study period, we can accommodate lunchtime or evening debriefs.

Note that we do our best to stick to the same debrief time from week to week but we do ask for some flexibility in case debriefs run late. This works both ways though, if you need to change your debrief time one week, we will do our best to accommodate you.
